How SMS Marketing For Auto Dealerships Works
In order to message potential customers, you need to get them to sign up for your texting program. You can do this with mobile keywords which collect opt-in mobile numbers automatically so customers sign themselves up to receive alerts about your new cars and upcoming specials. This allows you to automatically grow your customer lists without having to manually enter information. You can promote your keywords through different channels like Facebook, Twitter, flyers, emails, and in your television and radio ads.
